Dear friends,

As we launch our 2023-2024 season, I’m delighted to announce many  positive developments!

This is the strongest group of singers in our nine year history and we’ve hit the ground running. Our first concert takes place after only 4 weeks of rehearsals when we collaborate with the New Mexico Philharmonic in their program called “Immortal Voices” > What a delight to delve into Mozart’s eternal Requiem!

For the first time ever, we’re offering season tickets for our 5-concert season. The performances covered under this musical bargain include our now-annual holiday program (A Candlelight Christmas), our February concert of Spirituals and Gospel music (I Hear Music in the Air), our chamber chorus’s concerts at the Canteen Brewhouse (An Afternoon at the Movies), Carl Orff’s outrageous Carmina Burana, including professional dancers, and El Faro’s spring concert.

Speaking of the El Faro Youth Chorus, we’re happy to announce the TV special about them that aired last December (see elsewhere on this page) has been nominated for a Regional Emmy award. We wish the producers best of luck!

Our annual FebFest features a visit by the world-famous choral conductor Dr. Anton Armstrong in February. You can register now so as to be sure to get a spot. The number of singers we can accommodate is limited and this event is sure to sell out.

We hope to see you at some or all of our events. Thank you for your ongoing support and enthusiasm for Coro Lux and its programs.

Until then, keep singing!

FebFest 2023 Raises $1,500 for ABQ Chapter of Habitat for Humanity!

FebFest 2023, co-sponsored by Coro Lux and the United Church of Santa Fe, was led this year by Dr. André Thomas. With more than 100 singers coming from across northern New Mexico, our final concert in the Cathedral Basilica of St. Francis in Santa Fe was attended by more than 500 people. The free-will offering raised $1,500, which went to the ABQ chapter of Habitat for Humanity. A similar amount went to the Santa Fe chapter, donated by the United Church.

Ring Out, Wild Bells


With profound respect, Coro Lux acknowledges that the city of Albuquerque where we sing is the traditional homeland of the Tiwa-speaking pueblos, and that the larger state of New Mexico is the ancestral homelands of the indigenous members of the Pueblos, Apache, and Navajo (Dine), and is the adopted homeland of many other indigenous tribal members who have made New Mexico their home. Coro Lux sings for a better world, and we honor the land on which we sing and those who lived here before us.


Coro Lux is built on the ideal of “doing good as we do well.” We believe that in diversity there is strength. We believe the voices of the world should be heard, regardless of ethnicity, gender, religion, nationality, or sexual orientation. In the past we have used our concerts to call for peace and to benefit charitable causes, and we will redouble our efforts going forward. Through our art we sing for a better world.
